I'm a future student of the University of Stirling coming from Romania and I would like to know if it is possible to purchase a sim even though I do not have a bank account in the UK.
you will have no problem purchasing a Virgin Mobile "Pay As You Go" SIM.
They are easily available from most retailers.
For a "Pay Monthly" SIM you would need a UK bank account and credit history.
